“The first wealth is health.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Although a tip is never required, if your massage is at a spa or hotel in North America, a 20 percent tip is standard if you were pleased with the service. (The exception is all-inclusive spas that have a no-tip policy.) If you were given a gift certificate or purchased a deal through a discount site, a tip based on the original price is customary.
To make sure the therapist receives the tip best to give the cash directly to them before leaving the treatment room. I have worked in a spa setting where the spa provides the client with an envelope but then find at the end of the shift when clocking out that the front desk staff have stolen the envelope with the cash. Some spas will let you add the tip onto the transaction but best to give your therapist cash if you enjoyed the surface.
If your massage is in a medical or clinical environment, tips may not be expected or even accepted. If you’re unsure, ask the clinic receptionist or massage therapist whether tipping is customary. If you don’t want to ask in person, call ahead to ask. I hope this information will make you feel more comfortable when you book your next massage appointment.
